The top product from the Rochefort Trappist brewery. Dark color, full and very impressive taste. Strong plum, raisin, and black currant palate, with ascending notes of vinousness and other complexities.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2005 Dark Brown color like the bottle. Strong alcohol noticeable but well blended. This beer has volume and beautiful balance between Alcohol, Malts and yeast. Caramel tasting and since it is a newer bottle the alcohol is noticeable. All in all though I love this beer next to a Westvleteren 12. They are brothers in taste and style. Downtown Wine and Spirits in Somerville always has these in stock along with 6s and 8s. If someone told me I can only drink one type of beer the rest of my life, it would be Westvleteren 12s or Rochefort 10s.

11.2 oz. bottle. pour was a muddy brown with some sediment and a big foamy tan head. aroma was of yeast, alcohol and some spice. flavors were a bit subdued. not anywhere near the complexity I was expecting. bottle said 061009 so I think it was a fresh one? Ill have to try this again and re-rate. After all the rave reviews, I was disappointed.

What a wonderful follow-up to the Cave Creeks Chili Beer!! This beer has a rich dark flavor. At first the taste can be a little overwhelming. Once my curiosity of what the many ingrediants were settled, I really enjoyed this beer.

pours a nice deep mahogony color w/ a big thick flufy white head laces ok. Aroma keeps getting stronger up the 6,8,10 ladder this is big of the belgian yeast again plums and nutmeg and raisens. This stuff smells real good. Palate is rich and creamy warm well coated. Flavor is solid lightly alcohol belgian yeast plums buter raisens. Pretty damn good stuff.
